From the latest stats, Pakistan has risen to the 9th position with 3.3 per cent share among the worlds total SPAM while, India has taken top position from US by sharing a total of 9.3 per cent SPAM emails of the world.

It merits to mention here that India has only 121 million internet users as compared to those of US where there are 245 million internet users, yet India tops the list.
Considering the total number of internet users in Pakistan, it is still a more compelling fact than India that Pakistan with only 29.1 million internet users stand at the 9th position.
